A Micro Trend We Love: Borrowing From The Boys

We don’t know if it’s the structure, the oversized cuts, or our love affair with the ’80s lately, but men’s wear has taken a firm hold on our hearts for the moment. The silhouettes are just so classic — from slouchy jeans to work shirts — and they’re so easy it wear, it’s no wonder that it’s far less laborious for guys to throw together an outfit. You literally can’t go wrong. And what’s not to love about that? Here, we break down some of our favorite pieces from this Fall trend that borrows from the boys. 

LOAFERS

New York-based footwear line Dieppa Restrepo is known for taking style cues from men’s wear, so it’s no surprise that the brand is behind these perfect loafers. Inspired by the classic gentleman’s shoe, the Gaston Soft Onix Tassel Loafer has a rounded toe, tassel detailing and a low stacked heel. Don’t be surprised if your boyfriend steals them.

RELAXED BLAZERS

Vintage-inspired, oversized and in a medium grey hue, this Seeker Studios Essential Oversized Blazer screams Working Girl (remember that movie from the ’80s?). Made from 100% handwoven cotton, the fabric is supple, soft and super comfortable to wear during long days at the office.

DENIM SHIRTS

So simple, yet so good. The denim shirt is seasonless, ageless, gender-less and always good. Wear untucked or tucked. This 69 Stevie Shirt has a frayed pocket for a little something extra.

CABLE KNIT SWEATERS

Sorry, Grandpa. We’re gonna have to raid your closet, because a good cable knit sweater is perfect for adding a comfortable accent to a more structured outfit or for just cozying up on dreary Fall days. We love this unisex one from Intentionally Blank.

BASEBALL HATS

Bye-bye, bad hair days. Well, actually, you’re gonna be wishing for them just so that you can wear this super cute cap all the time. A baseball hat is great way to add some low-key androgynous elegance to your ensemble and this Reality Studio Mario Cap, with its linen/cotton fabric and streamlined shape, is a home run.

OVERSIZED JACKETS

This is the ultimate layering piece (because there’s just so much damn room) and Intentionally Blank nails the secret to not getting lost in the shape with their Moss Jacket — proportions with just enough structure. We’re talking giant cuffs and a matching giant hem.

BUTTON UP SHIRTS

Can you get any more classic than a men’s work shirt? Worn as a top, a dress or a night shirt, this silhouette is just effortless. The Squad Navy Poplin Quincy has a little something extra, with Mother of Pearl buttons and an unstructured hem.

DAD JEANS

Not just any jeans, though. We’re talking perfectly imperfect and loose-fitting ones. The Olderbrother Patched Five Pocket feel like you stole them from, yes, your older brother, complete with the patchwork detail.

STRUCTURED COATS

Double breasted, with structured shoulders and a tailored fit, the Won Hundred Therese Jacket makes for a sophisticated topper. Like a men’s wear coat, the fit is relaxed enough to provide room for movement and layering, yet is shaped in just the right ways to maintain serious style. Dad would be jealous.
